David Dymecki

Principal, Managing Director, Atlanta

The son of an engineer and an artist, David grew up with the perfect combination of influences for an unsuspecting architect: left-brain and right-brain thought processes and problem-solving. He didn’t know it at the time, but architecture was coursing through his veins.

By the time he finished architecture school and began practicing, David—a sports enthusiast—was determined to meld his love for design with his love for athletics. He regularly sought opportunities to design collegiate athletic centers, professional sports arenas, and recreational facilities. Ultimately, his work laid the foundation of our firm’s thriving sports and recreation practice.

Today, David serves as Managing Director of our Atlanta studio, where—among other responsibilities—he continues to expand our sports and recreation portfolio. Outside work, he and his wife, Nancy, enjoy watching their two children embark on new adventures, take risks, and change the world.

Fun Fact about David

David’s mother was an artist, painter, and textile designer who would create beautiful patterns and sell them as fabric designs. Her paintings and sketches showed up, across the country, in department stores and boutiques as dresses, curtains, and tablecloths! There was a real sense of wonder and excitement as they imagined, “Where would it show up next?”
